Yes, but not to Sony Music but Sony Publishing which now owns the
publishing rights.

>b) Who sends you roylaties from CC, Sony or Herald Records?

Sony Publishing sends me royalties. Herald pays them (Sony Publishing)
$.065 per song per album sold.

Because I did not perform on any of the Herald tracks I am not entitled to
a performance royalty.
